Following the flooding in the East Baluchistan, cholera and gastroenteritis has reportedly claimed at least 14 lives, including some children.
It is estimated that more than 3.5 million children of nations of the Indus Valley are at risk of getting infected with waterborne diseases.
According to a Press TV report ‘the United Nations has announced that at least 660,000 people have contracted acute diarrhea and other diseases’.
Senior Baluch minister Mir Sadeq Omrani on Sunday said that in Baluchistan alone more than one million people were dying without food, water, medicine and shelter.
A daily Times report quotes Mir Omrani saying “I have spent a week in the flood-hit areas and have seen no government official or any member of non-government organizations”.
Omrani added “we want direct aid from neighbouring countries and not via Islamabad”.
